Abstract: Using a hydraulic stress simulator, the mechanical behavior of the porcine pericardium used in the construction of cardiac valve leaflets was characterized following the same procedure employed with calf pericardium in Part 1 of this study. One hundred fifty pairs of tissue samples were subjected to tensile testing to rupture. One of the two samples from each of 120 pairs (four series of 30 pairs each) was saturated with commercially available threads made of nylon, silk, Prolene or Gore-Tex, while the other s… Show more
